Hello there, I'm new to this page but I heard this page can really inform and help new people like me. I currently have two betta's (Crowntail and Male), My Crowntail is living happy in its 2.5 Gallon Tank. But I need help with my 10 gallon tank for my Male Betta. I got a "Aqueon Deluxe Kit Aquarium 10". I need advice on what filter I should get for my him. My old filter looked like particles were flying in and out the water, and the current was to strong for him >_< Plus I need help with how to take care of him better :] PLEASE AND THANK YOU!
Thanks for the reply, well when I went to Petsmart all they told me was it's a male betta, im currently trying to find out right now. I have a 50 Watt Heater that is currently having my tank at 78 degrees. I have hiding spots for both betta's. The food I use for them are
-Top Fin Freeze-Dried Bloodworms
-Aqueon Betta Food (Pellets)
I'm trying to get "Hikari Betta Bio-Gold" for them .
Okay so it is a blue veiltail, very common Betta that is not very expensive. A picture would help.
For your tank baffle it will help a whole lot. For your food instead of getting Hikari, which changed their ingredients, try to get Omega One or New Life Spectrum Betta pellets. Those two are the best out there, they are a tad more expensive but will almost last the entire lives of your bettas. I have 5 as of now and I still haven't made a dent in the food.
ZergyMonster, I love how beautiful live plants are in aquariums. I'm really excited to start on mines :DD
Real plants need extra care though.
The correct lighting is key for aquatic plants, fertilizers are also sometimes needed depending on what plant you get, and CO2, well that's a little bonus for the plants if you really want to add that in.
Substrate also counts, whether you go for a NPT, or just using plain gravel/sand.
